With people, holiday programmes, winter training and clubs starting to get into training it is important that you understand our requirements as set out by the Government of what we can or can’t allow when using the indoor training facilities.

Note it is imperative you book ahead for any training sessions as we need to allow time between “bubbles” to ensure your safety under Level 2.

Please follow rules laid out below when using Graeme Blanchard Indoor Centre for training / coaching during Level 2 Alert Status. If you don’t adhere to these rules the costs of hire will be forced up so this is in everyone’s best interest 🙂
